Whippany-based Bayer announced on Monday that it has named Daniella Foster as the new Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability for the Consumer Health Division, effective today.
In her new role, Foster will be responsible for the development and execution of the Division’s global Public Affairs and Sustainability strategies.
She will report to Heiko Schipper, president, Consumer Health and member of Bayer’s Board of Management, and partner closely with Bayer colleagues and external stakeholders to drive and promote self-care as a global healthcare approach.
“Daniella’s vast experience in this increasingly important field will serve us well as we look to deliver on our business strategy and further strengthen the positive impact of our business on society,” said Schipper in a statement.
“I am eager to help the Consumer Health division strengthen our existing partnerships and forge new relationships,” Foster said. “This organization has a tremendous legacy of providing trusted, science-based brands to people across the globe. I am honored to join the team, and further our efforts to help people transform their everyday health.”
Foster most recently led Global Corporate Responsibility at the Hilton Corporation, where she created and implemented programs that positioned Hilton as the industry leader in sustainable travel and tourism, launching their 2030 Goals agenda and securing the top ranking on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index among hospitality companies.
Previously, she earned valuable public-sector experience at the U.S. Department of State, where she held roles of increasing responsibility and scope, and owned the department’s partnerships and social innovation agenda. Foster will be based at Bayer’s U.S. Headquarters in Whippany.
